I know it’s been a week since I posted. Shame on me, but I’ve been conserving energy for a good reason. I’ve been feeling a little run down lately. I swear my office is filled to the brim with cold and flu bugs and even some knitting friends seem to have come down with it lately. With that said, I need to conserve my energy to stay healthy. Next week I start checking off another goal on my 2009 goal list. I’m learning to weave. On Tuesday I will begin a 5-day class over two weeks that will go from start to finish of a project. I can’t wait. 🙂
In the meantime there has been knitting. I started a sock for my Silly Sock Pal, which I have to finish soon for mailing. I have one goodie for my package and an idea for two more, so I should be all set there. Just have to knit, knit, knit. You’re not seeing things – it’s in black and white because the color may or may not give it away… I’m not going to tell. (lol)
Finally I knit and re-knit the beginning of the February Lady’s Sweater. In the directions it says to pick up a stitch in the back for the increase. Well if you just pick up any old stitch I found it can get wonky. If you pick up the bar in the middle or I guess so be it the “right” stitch than it is nice and smooth.
First the wonky – look closely.
Second the smooth. Compare and contrast. If you can’t see anything than yes, I’m this crazy to re-knit this. (lol)
Finally it’s a rainy day around here and about 40-degrees, but we were blessed with two 60-degree days this week, which was fantastic.
